Brandon and Joe eloped in Las Vegas, Nevada, and months later decided to have a reception in their hometown of Pasadena, California, to celebrate with friends and family. They wanted the vibe to feel like one of their infamous house parties. Bringing in elements like candles from their home, adding in lounge furniture and having giant lawn games created the ambiance that the couple wanted for their reception. Other personal touches included having rosemary sprigs at each place setting, handcrafted bar signs to display the signature cocktails and available libations and “A New Life” from Jekyll and Hyde sung by one of their closest friends.
